Jenny's challenge this week.... "cute holidays" I knew exactly what stamp I wanted to use. This is from a freebie set I got last Christmas. I stamped and embossed it and then used a paintbrush to colour with distress inks. Added some stickles for snow. The paper was also from a freebie in a magazine last year ( see it pays to hoard things!!!)
I really liked the idea of using the Distress inks as paints. I just smooched a corner onto my acrylic block and had some water near by, dipping my fine paintbrush into the water then picking up a bit of the ink and painting it onto the card. I now have 27 colours of distress ink so easy to find just the right colour... I JUST LOVE my Distress inks.... just about use them in every card I make these days. So versatile.
We are having another fabulous day here in Auckland.... it's Labour Day Monday so a holiday and I'm sitting outside again doing this.... way too nice to be inside. Thanks goodness for laptops and wireless broadband!!!
Enjoy the week
